Fall 2013 collection bits

Grey & black with all its variations for Fall 2013… love my new origami skirt & the new rayon poly sweater knit for the grey cascade jacket.  The cream red grey ikat pattern in the wrap dress is looking great.  Feel free to stop in @ CURVE anyway between 11am & 4pm!

News from Pattiy Torno @ CURVE

white-gypsy-tunic-with-black-aline-skirt
Pattiy Torno @ CURVE has a new sign above the door, a few new fleece prices as of May 1, 2011 & a bunch of new clothes made and ready to try on. Alena Hennessy and her great tee shirts seem to compliment the ever popular Aline skirt… and with two quilt commissions to work on this summer, there should be a big something on the design wall before too long
